This Wednesday is an encore presentation of Paper Dolls Madonnalicious show, with a few new acts thrown in. Advanced tickets can still be purchased here:

In other news we are approaching Labor Day weekend and I have only been to Coney Island once this summer. Tragedy! My two main goals for this summer were to learn how to ride a bike and to ride the Cyclone. I haven't given up on learning how to ride a bike, but the lessons stalled out after the first one ended with me getting angry with my (infinitely patient) teacher and just generally reverting to my temper tantrum throwing 10 year old self. 

I hate roller coasters, but I love Coney Island and it seems like it's only a matter of time before the Cyclone is no longer running. 

Fun fact learned from a guy on the bus: When it rains, the Cyclone can reach speeds of up to 80 mph. 

I hope it's not raining this weekend.

Alice's Adventures in Derangementland

Tomorrow I'm performing at Derangement of the Senses. This is your chance to see my Alice in Wonderland act for FREE! It will be worth it! I promise.

Other reasons to go:

1. Lisa Maria Basile
2. Stephanie Berger
3. Jon Reiss
4. The usual cast of characters that makes every Derangement show an amazing time.

Happy Ending Lounge at 7:30

August Shows

It's the beginning of the end of summer. Rejoice! I know everyone thinks that summer is awesome, but it is just not my thing. Yes, I get out of work at 3:00 on Fridays and get to eat either peaches or corn on the cob at pretty much every meal. When I think about summer though the first thing that comes to mind is being uncomfortable all the time and not being able to use my living room for three months because it turns into an oven.

That said, I have a bunch of fun things coming up this month.

This Friday I have a show produced by the lovely ladies of Burlesque Bikini Boot Camp. It's at La Poisson Rouge and the last show they put on was sold out so it's probably a good idea to get tickets ahead of time. Advance tickets are also $5 cheaper!

Friday, August 17th is the next installment of my favorite show ever, Derangement of the Senses.

Tuesday, August 28th Paper Dolls will be bringing back all of the acts from the Madonnalicious show we did last April. This means I'll be performing my Weird Al act for the second time ever. If you have ever wanted to know just how ridiculous I can look taking my clothes off this is the show for you. I thought the first time I did this act would also be the last, partly because there are only so many times a human being can hear the song "Like a Surgeon" played on repeat before doing physical harm to themselves or others, but I'm pretty excited to be resurrecting this.
